The pre-orders for 2024 Cadillac Lyriq have been opened in June 2022. If you’re interested in the new EV, discover more details about it below.
Cadillac hasn’t revealed the produced numbers of the new Cadillac Lyriq EV that’s slotted for the 2023 debut model year, but one thing has been made clear: the two production cycles sold out in mere minutes. According to a report in June 2022, the orders for the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq are ready to be opened around fall. Naturally, it is expected that more details about the 2024 Lyriq will be dropped near the date.
Potential Powertrain and Performance of the 2024 Lyriq
Over at Cadillac, the timeline is a bit packed but slightly confusing. It has been officially revealed so far, that the debut series of the Lyriq will be carried at GM’s Spring Hill Manufacturing in Tennessee and the standard RWD 2023 version will begin to arrive at customers around the third quarter of the 2022 calendar year. Meanwhile, the AWD 2023 Lyric won’t arrive at least until the early following year—which won’t be far off from the supposedly scheduled production time of the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq.
The 2024 Lyriq is said to be available in single electric- and dual electric-motor setups. The single electric-motor variant is stated to generate up to 325 HP and 340 lb-ft of torque. the dual electric-motor version, on the other hand, will be performance-focused with an AWD system the outputs haven’t been unveiled yet but it is safe to expect that it will churn out at least 500 HP.
Riding on the GM’s Ultrium battery platform, the Lyriq sits on a low center of gravity and reaches an almost perfectly half-and-half weight distribution. Independent tuning is possible due to the 5-link front and rear suspension. Four driving modes are offered: the Tour, Sport, Snow or Ice, and a personalized “My Mode”.
Predicted Exterior and Interior Designs
While Cadillac’s styling is known to be daring and aggressive, they aren’t infamous for offending the eyes—unlike some design elements such as BMW’s new massive kidney grille. Luckily, the Lyriq seems to follow the cues. It boasts radiated Black Crystal Shield headline, LED projector headlights, and a slightly cramped face that makes it unmistakably appears like a present-day Cadillac.
Moving to the interior, it is missing the front trunk (or “frunk”) that’s commonly offered in EVs. Based on the company’s claims, this is intended to optimize the rear storage area rather than break it into two.
The Lyriq is equipped with a bit watered version of the Escalade SUV’s 33” display, active noise cancellation, integrated Google, and smartphone integration compatibility options (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also comes with an optional 19-speaker AKG sound setup. Moreover, the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq will offer GM’s trademarked self-driving technology, SuperCruise.
The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Price Estimation
During a recent media press, Cadillac’s representative person who happened to be its marketing manager stated that the 2024 Lyriq is going to be a distinctive vehicle that’s offered at the lower and higher price ranges. According to the reservation webpage, the rear-wheel drive variant price will start at around US$60,000 while the all-wheel drive version is available at a slightly higher starting price of US$64,000.
From these price details alone, it can be concluded that the brand is rearranging the vehicle’s specs because they are lower than the 2023 model MSRPs at almost US$63,000 (for rear-wheel drive) and nearly $65,000 (for all-wheel drive). However, it is predicted that the 2024 Lyriq will mark new technology additions such as a head-up display that cannot be offered completely by the time that the 2023 debut series is released.
That being said, obviously, for now, it is hard to predict how much room Cadillac is presenting itself by inserting the word “around” for the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq price. However, the company has said previously that it will not lever up the EV model’s price yet in the near future.
